How To Order Vegan Food At Red Lobster

 Majority of food items at Red Lobster contain non-vegan ingredients like butter, cheese, eggs, meat, milk, and seafood, making vegan options limited.

 Some Sides can be customized to be vegan. Say no to butter, cheese, and cream when ordering Red Lobster’s Baked Potato. See more tips on how to modify food items below (😉)!

 Cocktail Sauce, Marinara Sauce, and Ketchup are all vegan sauces that can be ordered directly off the menu. Pair with Sea-Salted French Fries if you don’t mind shared fryers.

⚠ Fried options are cooked in the same oil as menu items that contain non-vegan ingredients. You can decide if these fit your dietary preferences.
